We have been coming to Chicago for a few times and this is the second time we are in town using this service. I highly recommend it. You cannot have better chaperones in town; well prepared, cordial, passionate and kind.
Our Greeter, Gail, was wonderful in helping us design a personalized tour of Chicago. First she did an extensive tour of the loop and stopped a many buildings with architectural significance and highlights. We would never have been able to find all these hidden gems...More
What an incredible tour! Our Greeter, Lowell, was fantastic and put together a great itinerary for my daughter and me. I highly recommend Chicago Greeters, especially if this is your first trip to Chicago!

The Chicago Greeter program is a wonderful way to see parts of Chicago that you wouldn't be aware of otherwise. Seeing the city through the eyes of a local gives you a different perspective of the city. We spent a very pleasant couple of hours...More
Many thanks to our guide for a great evening. Very interesting inside information and discussion over beer after. Left us with an excellent impression of Chicago which we've since shared with many others.
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of
the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
